Immunology and Infection has always been at the core of iMM, since its creation within the campus of the University of Lisbon’s Medical School and hospital, and the dynamic community is always thrilled to organize an Annual SPI Meeting.
This year the invited speakers are Drs. Agace, Ballesteros-Tato, Becher, Domingos, Iannacone, Jung, Morais da Fonseca, Peduto, Samson, Schnupf, Shulman; and, as closing keynote lecturer, Warren Leonard. You can listen to their major and latest discoveries in this thriving field. The program s organized between traditionally core sessions like lymphocyte activation or immune responses to infection; to topical areas like mucosal immunology or metabolism in cancer immunity.
Besides the lectures from invited guests, the “soul” of the meeting are the communications from the community, in the form of posters (of which 6 will be selected for “speed communications” at the end of the meeting); and a set of 8 short oral communications that have been pre-selected to be part of the main program.
The Meeting includes 3 days of learning, discussing and developing/ setting up new collaborations. The “wine and cheese” poster session and the congress dinner will further promote a relaxing and enjoyable environment for sharing ideas and experiences.
